Amiigo Unveils Fitness Tracker That Knows What Exercise You're Performing
Date:1/24/2013

SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Amiigo, a Salt Lake City start-up, has developed a new device for gesture recognition and fitness tracking. Simply put, Amiigo has created a bracelet that uses accelerometers and machine learning algorithms to automatically identify and track specific exercises. For example, the Amiigo device knows if users are using the elliptical trainer vs the treadmill, or doing bicep curls, swimming, cycling, etc. Amiigo can also track metrics like reps, sets, speed, heart rate and blood oxygen. This new approach gives users an entirely different fitness tracking experience.

The Amiigo device consists of a bracelet and shoe-clip; both are used for this detailed, full-body tracking experience. Amiigo uses a proprietary gesture recognition technology to generate unique references for each movement. After an exercise is performed, Amiigo's algorithms will identify that specific movement and display it on the Amiigo iOS or Android app. Amiigo can track and identify over one-hundred different activities and can correlate those activities with physiological information such as heart rate and blood oxygen saturation. "Amiigo tracks what your doing and how your body is responding," says co-founder Dave Scott .

Supporters can order the Amiigo bracelet through Indiegogo for $99 and $119 for color options. 

Since their launch on Indiegogo, Amiigo has raised over $150,000 dollars from its +1200 supporters. So far, Amiigo has been able to attract a wide audience of athletes, as Scott states: "Amiigo is the ideal tracking device for runners, swimmers, weightlifters, cyclists and anyone who exercises routinely.
